That’s the number of unborn lives ended by legal abortions in this country since this day in 1973 (as of 10:00 a.m.).
1,235 in the U.S. alone today by the time I finish writing this sentence. Now, 1,236, and counting…
Planned Parenthood has terminated 6,341,432 since 1970 — 19,865 so far this year alone (as of Jan. 1 2013).
73,281… 73,283… 73,284… — rising, rising, rising… — abortions performed in the U.S. this year. Now the number is at 73,290 and rising. By the time I finish each sentence, the number has changed (Now, 73,292).
Since 1980, the number of abortions world wide is estimated at 1,282,347,683 — over 1.25 billion deaths of innocent unborn children in 33 years — 2,375,450 of those lives were ended just this year — which really means this month, since only 21 days have passed since the beginning of the year.
How fast is that death toll escalating? Compare the 2 numbers I typed in the last paragraph, since I typed them, with these: 1,282,348,024 / 2,375,683 (if the math does not add up, it is because I cannot copy-paste them quickly enough. If you check the math, here are how many children died from abortion in the time it took me to copy-paste the last two numbers: 108. Astounding isn’t it? Or isn’t it rather sick!)
47,125 children’s lives were terminated in their own mother’s wombs world wide today alone. Since I typed the first number at the top of this page, 2,090 unborn children have died — were murdered, through abortion.
The current number for abortions performed in the U.S. since the Roe vs. Wade decision on January 22, 1973, is now:

To end on a more positive note, 1,500 abortion clinics have closed in the U.S. since 1991. Given the skyrocketing numbers above, that’s not enough. But it is hopeful. We can still do more to end the killing in this country.
